All of the templates on SmashWiki that use Template:Navbox are currently generating a redlink in the top-left corner because the link is being made without the Template: namespace prefix.

For example, Template:SSBMStages has a useless redlink to "SSBMStages" where there should be a link to "Template:SSBMStages".

However, after trying to figure out what in Template:Navbox was causing the issue, I was stumped.  Anybody know how to fix this?

You don't have StringFunctions installed, which is messing up {{Tnavbar}} (the thing that generates the view, discuss, edit links). Since that isn't installed, {{#pos}} doesn't work and just posts as plain wikitext, so {{#if:{{#pos:{{{1}}}|:}}||Template:}} is always true, so it never returns the Template: part.

Dantman fixed the issue.  Many thanks.

Srsbsns is always lurking (?_?)
